Practical Examples: Managing the Time and Billing Application with Replication

You must make a decision about whether it's necessary to implement replication in your applications. It could be very useful if, for example, you have many consultants who work in the field and need to enter client, project, billing, and expense information while on the road. Using what you've learned in this chapter, you can make sure that all changes made to each consultant's copy of the database are sent to the main server database each time the consultant dials into the office.

You can also use replication so that the data managed by your applications is backed up during the day, which minimizes the chance of data loss or downtime. Finally, you might want to implement replication in your applications to distribute the workload over a few servers in your organization.
